PolyMedics Innovations appointed as DACH Distributor for NovoSorb BTM
PolyMedics Innovations (PMI) and PolyNovo are pleased to announce the appointment of the German company PolyMedics Innovations as the distributor for NovoSorb BTM in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Luxemburg (DACH).
PolyNovo anticipates CE regulatory clearance for the European Union shortly and the appointment of PMI will enable immediate market entry in the above countries.
PMI is the manufacturer of Suprathel, a synthetic topical cover for partial thickness burns and donor sites. PMI have a direct sales force in the four countries above with sales in the majority of burn units. Suprathel is not a competing product to NovoSorb BTM and is often used as a temporary cover before NovoSorb BTM is applied. With their established channel to market and surgeon relationships PolyNovo sees PMI as an innovative, dynamic partner that can facilitate timely market entry.
PolyNovo’s CEO, Mr Paul Brennan said, “This is a very exciting partnership which should bear fruit quickly in a pivotal European market for NovoSorb BTM. We have been in discussion with PMI for some time and we are confident we will be very successful in the DACH region”.
Christian Planck, Chief Operating Officer of PMI said, “We are excited to be able to offer the BTM dermal skin substitute to our customers. BTM is a perfectly complementary technology to our synthetic epidermal skin substitute Suprathel because our more than 250 customers have been looking for a cost effective, easy-to-use dermal wound matrix for a long time.”
